Centralized Certificate Store

Hi,

I have created a centralized cert store on a file store and need to put in a .pfx file. I created a website on IIS 8 on server 2012 and created a CSR which was then given to godaddy which generated the wildcard cert. The certificate request was then completed in IIS and I can see the cert in Personal Store however I am not able to export to a pfx file to store in the centralized cert store. We are planning to use the same certificate for multiple web servers. Has anyone dealt with this before?

TIA

Did you configure the private key to be exportable when importing the certificate from your CA onto your server?

The only way past this is to redo the certificate again, create a new cert request, sent it to Godaddy and   when you receive the certificate is to remember to tick the box to allow it to be exportable.

Alternatively, is to use OpenSSL to generate the cert request and the private key as files, so that this issue would not arise.
